MJ clears the air

Michael Jackson was on the defensive yesterday, calling a series of stories about himself "untrue, defamatory and malicious." The King of Pop asked his spokesperson to let people know that he:

  • is not bedridden
  • is not on any type of medication, including painkillers
  • has not "left" Las Vegas nor is he being "evicted" from his residence there. He decided not to exercise the option to purchase the house.
  • does not believe that his brother Randy Jackson has stolen money from him
  • does not think any family members would ever steal from him
  • has never used nor instructed his security to use force toward any reporter
  • is neither losing nor selling his share of the ATV/Sony partnership (including the Beatles catalogue)
  • is concerned that his assistant Grace Rwaramba, said to live a very private life, is constantly being attacked by Fox News' Roger Friedman
And for what is true? Jackson is currently working in the studio, "putting finishing touches on his music."
